Hi all, this forum has been extremely useful for me over the past few months thanks to all of you who take time to help others. I am new to OpenFOAM, and this is my first post.

I have both OF2.0.x and OF2.1.1 installed on the same system and both work fine, however I have only installed Paraview 3.12.0 in conjuction with OF2.1.1, and thus when I try to use it within my OF2.0.x environment it gives me an error and says:

Please build the reader module before continuing:
cd $FOAM_UTILITIES/postProcessing/graphics/PV3Readers
HOWEVER, when I attempt to build it the allwmake doesn't work because my $ParaView_DIR is pointing to /home/david/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-2.0.x/platforms/linux64Gcc/paraview-3.10.1, instead of pointing to /opt/paraviewopenfoam3120.

So how do I change the $ParaView_DIR?

Kind Regards,
